A mean and racist hoax story trending on Facebook and other social media claims that Rep. Dianne Black, a Republican congresswoman from Tennessee, accused the Obama administration of a conspiracy to make money off of selling "embryo parts" harvested in abortions by encouraging "more accidents during love making" and with the importation of "Mexican rapists" who are expected to "impregnate white women."
The hoax story is titled: Rep. Black: "The Government Imports Mexican Rapists To Impregnate White Women To Sell Embryo Parts"
Lead Stories can confirm that this story is false. It was published by a website that post sensational hoax reports on Facebook and other social media to draw web visitors who then find it hard to escape the page because of pop-ups that lead you to download possibly malicious cookies.
The fake story purports that Rep. Black made the outrageous statements while addressing the Family Research Council about her work on the House's "Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives." Rep. Black did actually speech to the group on June 9, 2016. You can see the full speech about the unethical and illegal sale of fetal tissue below. But she NEVER made the comments about "Mexican rapists" or the federal government encouraging love-making mishaps.
The hoax story claims the federal government's scheme to profit from selling "embryo parts" came "after the global economic crisis in 2008,."
The United States government realized that "an untapped market lies within smuggling embryo parts," and that that is the true reason why a number of birth control manufacturers in the country, "including several condom makers," all received significant subsidies from the federal budget.
"Basically, the government wants more and more accidents during love making throughout the country, which has resulted in a significant increase of accidental pregnancies," Black claimed.
"And as if that wasn't enough," she claimed, "now they've even started importing Mexican rapists to further bump up unwanted pregnancy rates. Don't be fooled - all those cases of rapes you've seen on the news in the past months and years, that were committed by Mexican nationals, were orchestrated, planned, and funded by the United States government. I mean, get real - after 9/11, not even a mosquito could have crossed the border anywhere, let alone felons with the rap sheet the length of the Rio Grande. How do you suppose all those rapists found there way into the country? They didn't - they couldn't - because they were imported with the sole purpose of impregnating white women."
